Looking for a more permanent mount for my phone on my new motorcycle I came across the RAM Finger Grip mount. It's a simple clamp to install on the bars and holds the phone securely on all 4 sides. The RAM ball mounts make it easy to reposition it just right.
The trickiest part is custom fitting the phone to the mount, made a little more difficult as there were no instructions in the kit. It was easy to find a diagram online.
Phone in Ram Finger Mount
The kit comes with two sizes of top / bottom mounts, and 3 sizes of side clips so you can custom fit it to your device. It's a matter of trial and error to find the correct location so the clips do not fall on buttons on the side of the phone. For my iPhone 8S in an Otter case it took the larger top / bottom clamps and the middle sized side clips.
The mount seems very secure, the spring clips are quite robust and have vinyl covers to protect the device. It's solid when clamped in. There are no screw clamps to deal with so it's easy to pop the phone in and out of the mount to take photos.
As this mount moved the phone closer in I was able to use existing wire harness clamps to run the accessory USB port so not zip ties were needed - nice and clean. A 6 inch phone cord makes the link to power.
